Ingenuity Fest Docks 32 and 30, 799 Erieside Ave., Cleveland. www.ingenuitycleveland.com Friday 5pm, Saturday and Sunday Noon. Cleveland’s IngenuityFest, the city’s annual celebration of art and technology, has become the biggest, most must-see event of the year. And this year’s event is shaping up to be the biggest and best yet. This year’s Fest will be held at the same warehouse docks as last year, behind Cleveland Browns Stadium, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Great Lakes Science Center. However, the venue will be arranged a little differently than last year, and will feature all-new content. This year’s theme is clouds. Organizers explain: “Head in the clouds. Cloudy thinking. Cloud computing. We have looked to the clouds for centuries to dream and seek new heights. Today we look toward the clouds as a space to store the information of our lives; as a place to live and work. We also look with hope and fear seeing blue skies and storms in our past, present, and future.
